About Elc Toys
When you think of ELC toys, you can’t help but imagine all the classics – wooden toys, train sets and classic games that help kids develop their minds and imaginations. Yet Early Learning Centre toys actually cover a huge range of different ways to play, as the selection of ELC educational toys on OnBuy makes oh-so apparent!
One of the most famous of all ELC toys are the wooden train sets with magnetic couplings to attach carriages and trucks to the engine. Designed to be played with by hand, with no need for batteries or the like, those timeless Early Learning Centre toys were a flagship feature in the old brick-and-mortar stores for years.
Yet in truth, even with ELC educational toys being easier to find online these days, that sense of classic fun has never gone away. ELC toys like shape sorters, puzzles and even fantastical playsets like castles and spaceships all help kids to learn logic, creativity and, most importantly, how to have fun!
What age are ELC toys for?
As the name suggests, Early Learning Centre toys are for kids who are just starting out in life, and the range supports and promotes development through play for babies, toddlers and kids up to around five or six years of age.
Around that time, it’s quite natural in many cases that their interests might drift to other things, although that’s not always the same for every child– especially with how fulfilling and wholesome ELC educational toys tend to be!
Are all ELC toys wooden?
Not at all – while Early Learning Centre toys are often best known for being wooden train sets and shape sorters, they’ve never been afraid of moving with the times. A lot of ELC educational toys these days are electronic in some form or another, and there are lots of plastic ELC toys out there too.
From kitchen sets and playful pizza-slicing ELC toys to Frankie Frog and his smashing red aeroplane, you’ll find that Early Learning Centre toys cover every aspect of life – from down-to-earth things like play-food and toy shops, to imaginative offerings like rocket ships and friendly dragons. Not to mention bubble-blowing crabs and fish!
Are there still Early Learning Centre stores?
Sadly not – those wonderful little realms of fun have since gone away, as ELC toys in general have shifted to being held by other retail outlets. Not to mention online – hence our fantastic selection here at OnBuy!
While the stores themselves are dearly missed, their departure from the high street has done nothing to slow down the innovation and brilliance being cooked up by the best ELC toys around. It’s just lovely to know that, even as kids grow up nowadays surrounded by screens and media, there are plenty of Early Learning Centre educational toys around to give your little ones the head start in life that they deserve.
Better yet, we’ve got plenty of ELC toys for you to choose from! Our selection features a fantastic variety of different ELC educational toys, from simple shapes and colours to help babies grow their developmental skills, to fully-fledged playsets to send imaginations soaring.
The beauty of ELC toys is definitely in the sheer variety on offer. Why not take a look for yourself?
